Tata Power Solar commissions largest rooftop solar plant in South India

Tata Power Solar, one of the largest specialised solar EPC players in India, has successfully commissioned a 2-MW rooftop solar plant for Murugan Textiles, one of the largest power loom producers in India. The solar plant is part of their green initiatives.  The rooftop solar system, built on top of existing spinning mills and a warehouse, is situated in a high-wind region and required considerable structural planning and innovation. Situated across three buildings, with 800 kWp on just a single building, the plant will help displace approximately 2,500 tonnes of CO2 per annum. The plant is designed for captive consumption and is connected to the grid through a dedicated feeder at 11 KV to avail REC benefits. Located in Palladam, Tamil Nadu; the plant is the first phase of a 3-MW project and work on the second phase of 1 MW will begin early next year. By generating their own power for the plant, Murugan Textiles aims to be able to manage the plant’s power requirements while pioneering the green initiative in the area.
